We are expecting sister-in-law L, niece C, and a friend this weekend – coming up for Parents weekend at Husson, so we will also be seeing niece B. I love being the B and B for Husson visits – although the visits are short, they are fun. And when was the last time I went to a college football game? Not sure, but it is supposed to be a clear day, so it should be fun. Chilly, I guess, but I can layer. They arrive late tonight, because C has school today, so they won’t hit the road until 2:30 or so.
So. Before they get here, I have to make a few beds, do a little cleaning and some cooking, lots of laundry because the weekend will be filled with other activities. I also have to find some time to go to the PO, grocery store (usual Friday stuff!) and phone in to a meeting at work.
Playing with the kittens needs to be on the list – they looked quite surprised to realize I was still home. 7 months old and they still don’t know the days of the week!
A chore I haven’t done in a LONG time, but needs doing is cleaning the pellet stove. We have been using it in the evenings, and a few over nights, so my winter Friday AM routine begins after the meeting. We try to use it instead of the regular heat – although we do love having radiant heat, it is so expensive to buy the gas, so we don’t use it until we have to. Which might be this weekend, as people will be sleeping in the loft, and the stove is NOT quiet. If we ever have to buy another one, noise level will definitely be a deciding factor in my choice! But I know it is supposed to get cold tonight, so I will get it all cleaned out and ready to fire up this evening.
So not a crazy busy day, but one where I putter along and it all gets done. My favorite kind.
One craft project I am working on – felting a hat. Can you believe I have never done that before? Crazy. Anyway, we got up early to go for a walk this morning (last day of Biggest Loser, after all!) but it was raining. So instead, I started messing with felt. I’ll let you know how it comes out. I think it will take a few tries, but I have already noticed the wool is fuller and softer. This could be a new love.
